CHILDREN AT Play Days Playgroup and Plus 2s in Rednal were paid a surprise visit by Father Christmas during their festive parties.
Talented Santa sang songs and played musical instruments with the children, as well as participating in a game of pass the parcel.
He then handed out presents to the children, who were aged between six months to four-years-old.
The playgroups had been running at St Stephen’s Church, in Rednal, for 28 years with the help of volunteers.
The church is looking forward to future celebrations over the Yuletide period.
